Cilj: Predstaviti kiruršku tehniku i postoperativni tretman kronične rupture musculus pectoralis major. Prikaz slučaja: Prikazujemo pacijenta starog 32 godine, muškarca, nakon oz-ljede zadobivene tijekom dizanja utega. Magnetna rezonanca je pokazala rupturu tetive s re-trakcijom lateralno od središnje aksilarne linije. Pacijent je operiran i nakon šest mjeseci na-stavio je svoj prijašnji način života. Zaključak: Kronični slučajevi rupture m. pectoralis major mogu se uspješno liječiti. Naš pacijent se u potpunosti oporavio i nastavio baviti aktivnostima (dizanje utega) kao i prije ozljede. Nekirurško liječenje je povezano s mnogo češćim gubitkom snage i nemoguć nošću ponovnog bavljenja sportom.
